The latest?

A sitting Congressman claiming that "we" will fight a sitting President..... in the streets.

 

It'll be a long, nasty, dirty war.

If you're not alarmed by this sort of rhetoric, and don't find it to be cause to immediately demand that any such "lawmaker" be expelled and even prosecuted for a terrorist threat you're not very bright.

It would be legal to call for a general strike, for example.

But fighting in the streets is another matter.  That's a declaration of intent to commit violence against a sitting government.

Good luck with that Mr. Californicated.  May I remind you that your Governor has just declared he intends to allow illegal invaders to access Medicaid and that the Federal Government has not only no requirement to fund that it has an explicit requirement not to under current law, and that without said funding California will fiscally collapse within months.

Then what?  You have a bunch of very angry illegal invaders and a metric crap-ton of homeless junkies, all of whom will be cut off, and no way for the state to fund any of their bullcrap.

Good luck with that.

1. He'll claim it was "sarcasm" or some other such bull**** like that other jackass did with the nukes & gun confiscation hubbub a few weeks ago. California communists and leftists in general can make any threat they want and toss a "just kidding!" at the end and not go to jail. They are the only ones with such privileges.

2. Shhh... don't interrupt an adversary while they're making a catastrophic mistake. (They haven't got all the guns yet!)

Wifi, I really wish that were true but it's pretty clear now that Trumptastic hasn't the fortitude of sack to make a distinction regarding actual enemies vs the boilerplate stupidity from the dims, particularly the ones from the Left Coast. Besides that, WE are the enemies because we deign to think for ourselves and use such heresies as facts and reason and ****. Also, I'm not entirely sure a solid case could be made that these people do truly owe allegiance to the US. I haven't seen much evidence of that in my several decades on this rock.

Leftists are feeling frisky and think they are free to speak their minds now.

Methinks this doesn't end well for the individual leftists over time. Not certain about the results for the country as a whole.

Let's do it. I am slowly accepting the decline of the country anyway.

On a lighter note the APA just declared that masculinity is a mental disorder. So at least I have that going for me. I guess we are all supposed to look like soy boys.

The financial penalty needs to be severely escalated for treason and sedition....10k is not enough in today's economy. 100 million and 20 yrs would be a good start for those that avoid the hangman's noose.

I wonder if anyone is going to point out to him and the rest of the Marxist "resistance" that they are beautifully illustrating why no one is going to comply with any of their new gun control laws?

Can't wait for the "The only purpose of those assault rifles is to kill people!" Umm, yeah, that's why they are called weapons. They come in handy to deal with people who come to do you harm...like this ******* from California.

Id be perfectly ok with a peaceful parting of the ways. The entire middle of the nation becoming its own nation and let each coast do what they want. But that would also require that those that like big govt would have to move out of the middle part of the country as well.

The left would never allow it because they know they need the food, oil, gas, etc. and cant afford to pay for it.

I was once in attendance for an after the final exam bash at one of the local pubs. This was before Bush the Junior made his terrible mistake in Iraq. One of the males present said, "We should do something about Saddam Hussein!" As an old grunt Vietnam Veteran, a true rarity in academia, I inquired as to what he meant by "we"? I asked him if he had a mouse in his pocket. He looked perplexed. So, I gave him my Standard Offer, of an M1 rifle, justly praised by General Patton, a bayonet, and several cartridge belts of my finest hand-loaded ammo, and then HE could "do something about Saddam Hussein", personally. The professor looked at me in horror. The jerk started immediately backtracking. And I told him that true victory was achieved when an infantryman comes out of the tyrant's bunker displaying his severed head, and proudly announced that, "We got the bastard!" Anything else was just noise.

@Wa9jml -- Exactly.

This is much more true when some political wonk uses that "we" crap. There was honor among the Patricians a long time ago because they had to get out in front of the troops and physically lead them. The King took PERSONAL risk to his continued existence above ambient temperature in starting or prosecuting ANY sort of conflict, and what was worse was that he was clearly the best-armed and armored around, so everyone went after HIM.

**** these people; if they want a war they're going to get one, and they'll be the first ones to complain when it starts but doesn't go their way -- and it won't.

We're talking about people who have the same respect for pronouns that a high school quarterback has for his drunk prom date. Be it we, him, her, xe or any of the other made up ones.

The California ******* is one of the many "Let's you and him fight" contingent.

It's comical how these left wing fruit cups try to talk tough. If his followers wanted to fight about anything, it would be someone's T-shirt or hat. Beyond that they wouldn't show up. Bully's always have big mouths but don't like it when their victims fight back.

C'mon, fruit pie. The royal "we" can make the world a better place by expending just one round of .308 into your melon. The lucky lead dispensing operative will then quietly put his dispenser away and go have a nice cup of coffee and a Danish.

Do you really want to go there? Because once you pull that ****, it's a flying-lead assurance that the finish line you dream of isn't one you're ever going to see.

That's similar to something I told a liberal when George Clooney was saying the US Army needed to clean up Somalia: Georgie-boy can buy a bunch of rifles, recruit some people and go show us how it should be done and stop trying to sacrifice other people's kids.

So, Congresscum Levin, step up, recruit your army of traitors show us how you're going to fight in the streets.

It seems that even Canadians in the land of the Trudeaus are refusing to comply with new gun laws: apparently only 20% have registered their guns with the new Quebec gun registry.

Yup. I wrote something similar when Boko Haram abducted all those Nigerian girls. And FLOTUS Obama held up her sign with a pout saying "#bringbackourgirls". I got fed up with seeing the hashtag campaign so I posted that it wouldn't be hashtags and Facebook likes that brought those girls home. It would be MEN. Hard men with rifles. All would suffer, most would bleed and some would die. But only MEN would act in defense of those girls and sacrifice for their safe return. I offered to buy airfare to Nigeria for any Hashtagger that wanted to go and find them. Crickets.
